PERL: Pain, Exasperation, Reward, Love

I've had a sleepless night, and to keep me amused I scribbled down on a piece of paper some "perl self-definitions" that might be amusing... let me hear what you think of them!
Perl is a:
  • prized electronic romantic lingo
  • paradigmatic entropy-reducing language
  • particularly efficient recipe launcher

Perl gives:
  • powerful effects, reduced load
  • packed extensible redundant libraries
  • provides enigmatic readable lines

Use it to:
  • produce elegant, refined letters
  • print enhanced reports lazily
  • parse efficiently running lines
  • punish exemplarily ranting lamers

Final comments:
  • Perl eventually resembles Larry
  • Python evidently ranks lower

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I disagree! I love Python.
      Whoops. That was me. Hehe.. =)

[Lady_Aleena]: Well, not much of my code. A few little things people here like. The big things though, the more important to me code, people here seem to loathe.
[atcroft]: Lady_Aleena: My early code was pretty horrible... but somewhere early on I learned not to take criticism of my code personally... which was probably a good thing, considering the kind of code I wrote at the time. :\
[Lady_Aleena]: I am hungry, so I'm going to go make something to eat. I hope you figure it out atcroft. Have a nice night!
[atcroft]: I have one script that I have started re-writing several times over the years, and have yet to get it working in a cleaner/better form. (It is some smelly code-I did not even know about hashes at the time I wrote it.)
[atcroft]: Enjoy, Lady_Aleena!
